Equations of motion for the heart will be presented in this lecture. These equations give a unified description of the muscular heart walls, the flexible heart valve leaflets, and the blood that flows in the cardiac chambers. The numerical solution of the equations of motion will also be briefly introduced, with further details in my talk on Thursday.
